My name is Shalina Tovar and I battle Lupus, a kidney disease. I have been fighting
like a girl since May of 2005 which is when I was officially diagnosed. My Lupus has caused my left hip to fail. I’ve been dealing with avascular necrosis of the hip since 2009 and now I will have to have a hip replacement on April 13, 2011. I just have to say that without the support of my Husband, church, family, friends, and most importantly without God, I would not be where I am today. I will continue to fight like a girl till they find a cure to end this awful disease!! To anyone who is battling a disease without a cure, don’t ever give up! We have to stay strong and have a little faith that one day a cure will be found to end the fight!
